This unit is designed to help young writers see the connection between print and cursive by practicing them together while enjoying learning about photosynthesis, plant tropisms, shapes of leaves, and more. In the first pages of the unit, words are stacked so that print is immediately followed by cursive. Students then trace the words in the same pattern. Finally, students can write both words following the pattern. After the twenty individual terms, students can practice twenty complete sentences using the same pattern. 53 pages total. Ages 5-10.
